Hello
Have you looked in the mirror lately?
Go on
Do it now
Look
Keep looking
Strike a pose
Look again
Who are you these days?

You ordered a performance, we’re here to deliver. A set of instructions straight to your door. You’re a natural performer, after all. You’re performing all the time. Don’t worry, no one is looking. No one is looking but you. The buzzer is for you, the performance is by you, about you. We made it especially. A treat. We hope it sets you free.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT HOW DELIVERANCE WORKS

●      The show is LIVE and happens on the day of your booking within a 3 hour timeslot - a more specific time will be emailed to you on the day. It takes about 1 hour 30 mins - 2 hours and should start as soon as you receive your delivery. In other words your booking is a ticket for a specific show at a specific time. Please be ready to receive the delivery at the time we give. Please note there is a maximum of 2 bookings per household for each performance timeslot.   

●      The show is made for you to enjoy in your home, by yourself - please consider that you will want privacy and time to enjoy the show and inform other people in your household if necessary.

●      You need access to several things within your home, such as your bathroom and your wardrobe during the show. You will need your phone at one point (and that sweet spot that gets the signal).

●      We invite you to enjoy this event in comfort so you might want a beverage to hand and your reading glasses, just like when you go to the theatre.

●      The element of surprise is important to us so that we ask that you keep the details of your experience to yourself and the contents of your delivery are not to be sent on to another person. To do so is an infringement on copyright.

●      Because we need to get everything ready for your delivery, sales for each performance will end the day before a delivery performance and 3 days before for the postal performance.

Please note: Delivery performances are for audiences based in Dunoon. If you live outside of Dunoon, please book for the postal performance on 5th June 2021.

WHAT ELSE CAN WE TELL YOU ABOUT "DELIVERANCE"? 

Are you coming to my house? Yes - but only to drop off a delivery - you’re performing this piece. All deliveries will adhere to social distancing guidelines and deliverers will wear masks for your and their protection.

Wait - I'm performing it? Yes, but don’t worry, we’ll tell you how. Deliverance is a performance about you, by you, for you. No one else is present. You’re gonna be brilliant in it. We mean it, five stars guaranteed.

But who made the show? Brite Theater (with support from Vanishing Point). The team on Deliverance is made up of creator Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir, associate artists Rob Jones and Alisa Kalynova and consultant Emily Carding.

Can I do it whenever I like? No, this is a live event. You book for a certain date, we deliver to you within a three hour time slot on the date of your booking (a more specific time is given on the day). Once you’ve received your delivery the performance starts. It is about 90 minutes to two hours in duration. Just like being in the theatre, really. Except you don’t need to put your shoes on.

Can I do it wherever I like? We made it especially so that you can do it in your home, we don’t recommend doing it anywhere else. This is Scotland, even in summer it gets cold out there!

Hang on, within a three hour time slot I get the delivery, why the open timeframe? Because we need time to get the delivery to each audience/participant each evening, meaning we might start with you or you might be last to receive your parcel depending on our route.

Can my whole household do it at the same time? No, one ticket - one performance. This is a show made for one. However, if more than one person in a household has booked in for the same performance we will give you separate time slots for delivery, meaning you’re doing it on the same night but not exactly the same time.

Can’t I just rock up (meaning book last minute)? No, we need to get everything ready for you so we can deliver. Therefore sales for each performance will end at noon on the day. For postal performances sales will end midday 3 days before.

I’m sick of screens, why should I book for this? Us too. But fear not. Deliverance is not a zoom, streamed, digital, VR or filmed performance. You will need a phone for a phone call but that is the end of your tech requirements. This is a live theatre performance, so though it may seem experimental it is actually super old school.

What about access? Because this happens in your own home *most* access requirements should not limit your ability to take part. However, adjustments need to be made for audiences with visual impairments, severe dyslexia and/or hearing loss to best enjoy the performance. Severe immobility might also change your experience of this piece. If this applies to you or if you have any questions regarding access please get in touch with us so that we can accommodate. Special versions have been made for hearing and vision impaired audiences, which will be available on specific dates for each venue.

When you say there is limited ticket availability do you really mean limited? Yes, this is not a marketing ploy, we honestly have very few tickets per show so please make sure to book to avoid disappointment.

Should I worry about triggers? The age guideline is 12 plus for this show due to some of the content, but that is not to say there is cause for alarm. We believe in the magic of surprise but if you have something you know will trigger you and you’re worried this performance might set you off, please don’t hesitate to ask.

What exactly am I getting for my money? A unique live experience, delivered to your door made by award winning theatre makers. And you get to keep what is in your parcel. Plus, you support a small Scottish theatre company. Sweet!
